Truth & Consequences: Issue 29, Summer 2005
Art Director: Nicholas Brawley
Photographer: Jeffery Walls
For an issue that was all about mystery—in the form of comic-book hoaxes, closeted historical figures, and activism on the margins—we wanted this cover to be as open and literal as possible. And so, a pair of pants on fire. Setting objects aflame was very much the goal for this cover (an alternate, ultimately discarded concept involved a barbeque grill and a ream of paper), which marked a departure from the illustrated and collaged concepts of the past eight issues. After only a few shots and one charred clothesline, it was done.
Only 12 of these limited-edition prints remain—it's the Truth! Buy yours today or face the Consequences! (See what we did there?)
